Help us save our native birds
Every Canopy Tour helps fund our conservation programme, which aims to create a safe place for our native birds to thrive.
When is the best time for a tour?
Every tour is magical, however, the forest is most beautiful in the rain and early mornings or late afternoons. Tours times vary depending on the time of year. See the Canopy Tour timings and availability via our Book Now page.
I have done ziplines before - why zipline here?
Canopy Tours is the only place in the world where you can soar high above untouched ancient New Zealand forest, feed wild native New Zealand birds by hand and become part of an amazing conservation story. Our guiding team are highly experienced and all born and breed kiwis! Still not convinced, check out TripAdvisor and see what our customers say about Rotorua Canopy Tours - click here.
